Baking Essentials – Bread

While baking is a very broad subject, we believe there are few other kitchen activities which offer the same pleasure – both to the baker and to the eater. In these videos, you’ll learn how to prepare Flatbread and Focaccia that are perfect as a snack or side with a nice wintery soup for example, or even on its own. You’ll also learn about yeast and how to know if the yeast is activated, and some valuable hand-kneading techniques for the dough.


Homemade flatbread smells and tastes amazing. This easy recipe is a great alternative if you don’t have yeast and it will make a delicious side for antipasto, dips or soups.


In this video, we’ll share a superb recipe of focaccia and we’ll also tell you how to know if your yeast is activated and how to hand-knead this nice soft dough.
